A few days ago I was simply disgusted with the entire world following a protest against EA’s upcoming Dante’s Inferno. Today we have official confirmation, according to 1UP, that Electronic Arts actually staged the protest in order to get some extra popularity for their title.
About 20 people were involved in the fake protesting, organized by a marketing agency, and I must admit that I am still disgusted – this time with EA and not the entire world. Even though the protest indeed worked out and the publishers got the exposure they wanted, I don’t like the means of achieving that. Not at all. What is your opinion?
